Summary
This collection includes a scrapbook from the Indiana German Heritage Society in Indianapolis, Indiana ranging from 1989 to 2014 regarding the sister city relationship between Indianapolis and Cologne, Germany
Biographical or historical data
  • In 1989, Mayor William H. Hudnut and the City of Indianapolis passed a special resolution recognizing the Indianapolis and Cologne, Germany partnership based on mutual interests, including arts, education, sports, economic development, government, trade and tourism. Several members from the Indiana German Heritage Society helped develop this important partnership, including Christel DeHaan, Giles Hoyt, Gerald Lamkin, William McGowan, Frank McKinney, Robert Mohlman, Horst Winkler, John Krauss, Marianne McCullough, Alice Hillis and Betty Christian.
  • The Indiana German Heritage Society was founded on March 16, 1984 as a non-profit statewide historical and educational membership organization headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. The offices and meeting rooms are located in the historic Das Deutsche Hause-Athenaeum at 401 East Michigan Street. Meetings are lead by a volunteer board of directors. The Society is nonpolitical, looking at "German" not in terms of present political boundaries but in terms of ethnic traditions of culture and language. Their work includes promoting the interest of the German-American heritage of the state and the nation, fostering friendly relationships with German-speaking countries. They encourage and support preservation and the celebration of the heritage through vigorous research and publications. They are affiliated with the Max Kade German-American Center of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, supporting the center's academic activities (teaching, service to community and German Studies, research, publication and dissemination of research results).
